2018 Memorial Day MURPH Challenge

  • CrossFit Tides 622 Langley Avenue Saint Joseph, MI, 49085 United States (map)

Join us Memorial Day 2018! ~ Family and Friends welcome!

One of CrossFit's most famous Hero WOD's, which are named in honor of U.S. servicemen who died in action, The 'Murph' is named after Lt. Michael P. Murphy, a Navy SEAL who was killed in Afghanistan in 2005, and awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. (Murphy's story was also portrayed in the Mark Wahlberg film "Lone Survivor")

Murph is the ultimate test of cardio endurance, bodyweight strength, and mental toughness. Murphy often did the workout while wearing body armor- hence the 20-pound vest and its original name, "Body Armor." So if you have a weighted vest or body armor, wear it!

THE WORKOUT:
Run 1 mile
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats
Then run another mile
That's Murph.

Following the WOD, we will celebrate everyone's accomplishment by enjoying some ice cold beverages. Feel free to BYOB or North Pier will be donating some cold beverages to help you celebrate the completion of The MURPH!!
